Former Mossad intelligence officer Victor John Ostrovsky in his two extraordinary non-fiction books; ‘By Way of Deception’ and ‘The Other Side of Deception’; reveals and goes far deeper into the Mossad’s frightening and often ruthless covert activities. He describes, how Mossad through the use of deception, duped the Americans into bombing Libya. The operation which Mossad conducted against Libya was very similar to the one recently orchestrated in Mumbai
In February 1986, Israel sent a handful of Mossad agents in a miniature submarines to get to Libyan shores. On reaching near Tripoli, in the hours of darkness they off loaded into rubber dingy boats and came into Tripoli. On reaching city they rented an apartment and installed a “Trojan” transmitter, a six-foot-long communications device, in the top floor of a five-story apartment building to broadcast false signals. The device, only seven inches in diameter, was capable of receiving messages broadcast by Mossad’s LAP (psychological warfare / disinformation section) on one frequency and automatically relaying the broadcasts on the frequency usually used by the Libyan government services.
Broadcasting on the Trojan, the Mossad tried to make it appear that Libya was about to launch a massive terror attack on the western targets including the U.S. As the Mossad had hoped, the transmissions were deciphered by the Americans and construed as ample proof that the Libyans were active sponsors of terrorism. What’s more, the American CIA pointed out the reports that they received from the Mossad who confirmed it.
Only a couple of weeks after the ‘Trojan’ was installed, the La Belle Discothèque in West Berlin was bombed. This attack cost the lives of two American soldiers and a Turkish woman. The attack was not done by Libya but the Mossad led the U.S. to blame Libya for the bombing of the Berlin nightclub frequented by U.S. soldiers. Same tactics is seen implied here in recent Mumbai massacre Drama where all the high profile targets like Mumbai busy railway station and the famous spots like Taj Mahal Palace, Oberoi Hotel and Café Leopard frequented by US and other foreigners were duly engaged. Media was handed over a hostile lead to implicate Pakistan in it and with many more strings to keep on speculating?
In case of Libya; US President Ronald Reagan reacted promptly to the attack on the Berlin nightclub. On April 16, 1986 in an operation code name; ‘El Dorado Canyon’, he sent U.S. aircraft from a base in England and from two U.S. carriers in the Mediterranean which unleashed havoc by attacking and dropping tons of bombs on Qaddafi’s office and residence in the Bab al Azizia barracks and on various other military targets in and around two Libyan cities. Libyan air base got the maximum poundings. Qaddafi’s daughter was killed. A U.S. F-111, was shot down over Tripoli, killing the two American crew members.
There are Old Testament injunctions to the Hebrews which forms the bases and the pillars of Jewish mythology. The Commandments very explicitly ensues to annihilate every Gentile nation over which they gain power:
“And thou shalt consume all the peoples which the Lord thy God shall deliver unto thee; thine eye shall not pity them…thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth.” (Deuteronomy 7:16, 20:16)
Similarly bloodthirsty, explicit injunctions are repeated so often in the Jews’ holy books that we can only assume that they are meant to be taken seriously. The historical evidence suggests that in ancient times the Jews did indeed take their religion seriously: they were notorious everywhere and at all times as implacable haters of humanity who in turn were thoroughly despised by every other people among whom they lived.
One is astonished to note that how carefully media cultivates image of the Jews as a gentle, inoffensive victim of bigotry, always being persecuted but never persecuting others? Is that also deception? And even if it is, does it necessarily mean that beneath the Jew’s mask of benevolence and innocence hides the malevolent visage of a cunning predator? Perhaps for every bloodsucking Jewish swindler like Ivan Boesky or Michael Milken; there is a Jewish benefactor of mankind like polio vaccine developer Jonas Salk. And for every bloody-handed Jewish gangster like Ariel Sharon, Meyer Lansky, or Yitzhak Shamir there is a Jewish Nobel Peace Prize winner like Menachem Begin, Henry Kissinger–or the appropriately named Elie Wiesel. Or are we also being deceived when the Salks and the Kissingers are held up to us as reasons for not condemning all Jews for the transgressions of some?
Where as the massacre of Mumbai and in recent carnage of Gaza; Israelis after isolating the Gaza strip, barricaded the Palestinian and slaughtered them in Gazan locked up cage. This may be the most despicable acts but Mumbai and the Gaza are the two, most cunning acts of Mossad Gambles to have recognised her invincibility in the region. After Gaza carnage this seems now established that Israel is the only power in the Middle East, whose ruthlessness goes unchecked. Rather she enjoys the support of all the big powers.
In case of South East Asia the Mossad has tried to set her foot on Indian shores. Through deception Mossad wants India to attack Pakistan. In this war India is to serve as a proxy for Mossad, and Israel’s presence is marked with a granted place to a higher station by United States to look after U.S. interests in the extended region and thus Israel expand its portfolio.
In the changing world; whether Bush departs or arrives— Mr. Barack H Obama; we may only find a new name on the label; wine in the bottle remains the same. American Imperialistic foreign policies are driven by its think tanks. With no change in those fields; the arrival of Obama apparently may not forge any change in practical terms in U.S. foreign policy. The show goes on.
